Certified Copies and Copying Costs
You can obtain certified copies of documents through the Central File Room. You can request in person, by phone, or by written request (including fax) by following this procedure:
- Request certified copies from file room;
- The file room will coordinate having the certified copies made;
- There is a 50-cent charge for each certification prepared.
You cannot remove copies of documents from TCEQ premises prior to certification if you want them certified. If you are in a TCEQ regional office and the document you wish certified is located there, the request for certification must be coordinated through the public information officer in Austin.
